Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
It focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
Nutritional Therapy Association provides training based upon scientific principles about how the human body functions, anatomically and physiologically. We also understand there is an innate intelligence of our own body's nutritional needs that we have lost touch with. The Nutritional Therapy Training course provides a means to reconnect with, and grow attuned to our body's physiological response to nutrients.
A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ (NTP) is a paraprofessional certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, Inc.®, trained to evaluate a client's nutritional needs, support normal function, and identify nutritional deficiencies.
